The board said in its weekly bulletin that these items were prohibited during its examinations, warning that candidates who breached the directive would be disallowed from taking the UTME.
The board said, “To ensure that our examinations meet best global practices, the board has prohibited the use of the following items during its exams.
They include watches, pens or biros, mobile phones or similar electronic devices, spy reading glasses, calculators, hard disks or similar storage devices, books or any reading material, cameras, recorders and microphones.
“Others are earpieces, ink or pen readers, smart lenses, smart rings or jewellery, smart buttons, bluetooth devices, key holders, erasers and Automated Teller Machine cards.”
JAMB noted that it would continue to strive to eliminate unwholesome practices during its examinations, which necessitated the biometric verification of candidates to curb impersonation as well as the introduction of Closed-Circuit Television cameras to its centres nationwide.
It said, “The search for a reliable assessment model after the traumatic experiences with Paper and Pencil Test hitherto used by the board led to the adoption of the Computer-Based Test. The paper format was jettisoned because it was characterised by different forms of examination malpractices.
“We believe that by offering highly competitive method electronically at approved testing centres, candidates and other stakeholders would continue to benefit from increased access and flexibility for immediate grading among other benefits.
The CBT being administered by the board is a dynamic and individualised assessment tool designed in line with global best practices.”
